Deambiguifying pipe

Posted under Tags

The bulk update request #9928 has been approved by @nonamethanks.

create alias pipe -> smoking_pipe
create alias holding_pipe -> holding_smoking_pipe
create alias pipe_(smoking) -> smoking_pipe
remove alias pipe -> smoking_pipe
deprecate pipe

Currently ambiguous with the other kind of pipe.

I'd also like to see pipes aliased to something like industrial_pipe. Thoughts?

    I thought about pipe_(plumbing) but it doesn't cover scenarios like post #3323086 or post #5211426.

    i think it does cover those; from wikipedia:

    Plumbing is any system that conveys fluids for a wide range of applications


    a fluid is a liquid, gas, or other material that continuously deforms (flows)

    the scenarios it wouldn't cover would be e.g. pipes for hamsters to crawl through, or the slide in the background of post #3789547

    i'd choose _(plumbing) over industrial_, which sounds too specific
